Office of the University Registrar

Welcome to the University Registrar's Office at Chatham. We are located on the first floor of Braun Hall, Room 101, and we are open Monday through Friday 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.


The mission of the University Registrar’s Office is to provide exceptional service in a timely, accurate, confidential, and supportive manner in accordance with University policy and federal law. We are charged with ensuring the integrity, confidentiality, and security of academic records and adherence to academic policy.

An official transcript is the University's certified statement of your academic record. The official transcript contains the University seal and signature of the University Registrar. Therefore, negating the need for notarization. The official electronic transcript is a PDF delivered through Parchment. When requesting your transcript select the level of coursework undergraduate, graduate or all. 

  • Maximum processing time for all requests from 1990 to the present is three business days (this does not include weekends) from receipt of request. When placing a request, it is important to be mindful of any pending deadlines. Expedited processing and delivery are not options.
  • Electronic transcripts which are sent and opened, expire within 24 hours.
  • Electronic transcripts which are sent and not opened by the recipient, expire within 30 days, and a new order will have to be placed.
  • Official transcripts will NOT be emailed or faxed (due to security issues).
  • Once orders are completed, a confirmation email is sent to the requestor.
  • Please note that you must complete your signed release with Parchment in order for us to send your transcript; this is in accordance with federal law.
